CNN: Giffords to Be Transferred To Rehab Facility Friday

CNN:

In an e-mail sent to friends and family members Tuesday and obtained by CNN, Giffords' mother, Gloria, writes that she will be moved from Tucson's University Medical Center to rehabilitation facilities in Houston, Texas, on Friday.

"There is a team of medical specialists involved ... including military surgeons who specialize in bullet wounds to the head," the e-mail says. "They want to start aggressive rehab immediately."

University Medical Center spokeswoman Darci Slaten would not confirm that Giffords will be moved Friday.
